Stumbled across this place and I'm so glad we did. As an ice cream fanatic I was dying to get there. I had the salted caramel peanut butter monster and it was heavenly. I even told my family I dropped my ice cream so I could get away with purchasing another one. Wish I could eat this every day.

Yum!! Fresh, creamy and smooth - everything ice cream should be. The highlight flavours for me were PB & Nutella (loved the little bursts of peanut butter in my mouth... mmmmm..) and the Peaches and Lemon sorbet - so absolutely refreshing and the flavours work perfectly together. Slightly pricey tho.

Absolutely authentic and delicious Argentinian ice cream, with some really unique flavours. Very friendly staff and a nice little area to sit and enjoy.

Lighter, less sweet, a good thing, while still maintaining a good gelato texture and flavour. Tried cafe, salted caramel, and dulce de leche and chocolate chips which brought back memories of Buenos Aires. Worth checking out.

Beautiful silky-smooth gelato that is intensely flavoured without being overpowering. Different flavours to the run-of-the-mill gelato shops. This is top of the range gelato made with top quality ingredients. We will be back to sample more flavours!

I had heard a bit about this place and after going to Kaprica with my 2 young daughters, I thought we would give this place a try. The lady - maybe an an owner was extremely friendly and let us have a try of the ice- creams we were considering. The dulce de leche was the winner but the other... More

Please save your money and head down to Messina instead... More expensive but not as premium nor gourmet... Quality taste similar to ice cream bought in supermarket

originally from Argentina, Patagonia, this ice cream is amongst the best in Melbourne! So tasty and delicious. The "dulce de leche" flavour is grand Try it!

Neighbourhood Profile
Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who started their day with a local espresso. They are gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this Little Italy which has something for everyone. Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way they do it "back home" and maybe even a bit of amore. The number of gelato choices will leave you in a state of indecision and wide footpaths, big awnings and a sea of packed tables makes this al fresco dining experience a continental buzz. Even if you’re not eating, it’s worth the stroll just for the people-watching, which, of course, is an Italian tradition.
